NASAís Cassini spacecraft has orbited Saturn for over a decade and studied the ringed world in detail. Cassini has helped us discover incredible cloud formations on Saturn, methane lakes on the hazy moon Titan and a salt water ocean on the icy moon Enceladus, which may contain alien life.
On Friday, September 15, the Cassini spacecraft is going to crash into Saturn. It is angled to enter the planetís atmosphere and burn up.
Visit the planetarium this month for Remembering Cassini during our Evening Showings. We will explore Cassiniís discoveries and its final dive into Saturn. We brought back One World, One Sky: Big Birdís Adventure for our Childrenís Matinee. STARS, narrated by Mark Hamill, plays for our Saturday Matinee.
Our planetarium has forty-two, theater-style seats for a comfortable viewing experience. Its digital, star projector creates an immersive portal on our universe. With it, we will show you, your family or your students more than just the stars. We will travel to the planets, back in time and beneath the ocean's surface.
Located just 20 miles west of New Orleans, Louisiana on US 90, the Planetarium is attached to the West Regional branch of the
St. Charles Parish Library at 105 Lakewood Dr. in Luling.
